7 make lilies your coffee companion
The best lilies for pots and containers are Asiatics and Orientals. Keep them well watered and in a sunny position for blooms from early to late summer.
Make your lily garden burst with more joy by adding other flowering plants that complement each other.
Brilliant red, orange or yellow wands emerge from long, sword-shaped leaves. Plant corms at the same time as your lily bulbs.
A spring-flowering lilac bush sets the scene for your summer blooms, and has the sweetest scent that fades as your fragrant lilies emerge.
Dwarf salvias add vibrant colour contrast and, if planted in front of your lilies, will hide the bare lower stems.
